Although winters can be relatively mild in Greenville, Mississippi, temperatures still drop overnight, and this can drain your car’s battery. To keep up with car battery maintenance this winter, follow these simple tips.
Keep it clean
Not only do cold winter temperatures force your battery to work harder, but so do dirt and grime. Inspect the battery on occasion for white powder on the terminals. If you notice any, wipe away the corrosion with a damp cloth, water, baking soda, and a toothbrush.
If you have a fully charged battery, it’s much less likely to freeze than a fully discharged battery would. As such, be sure to charge the battery early in the winter season.
If you are able to, park your car in a garage at night to keep the battery warm. If you don’t have a garage, try to find a spot that’s blocked from the wind, or face the front of the car away from the wind’s primary direction.
Schedule a battery check
To make sure your battery isn’t close to dying, head to our dealership’s service department for a battery check. By taking this step, you can have more peace of mind that your battery will survive the cold.
If you’re interested in getting a battery check or you need any seasonal maintenance, make an appointment with the James Ceranti Nissan service department.
